Since AEJM had to cancel all its regular onsite programming for this year, including the Annual Conference, we are determined to keep the network alive by organizing a series of online events. By the exchange of information and the discussion of common challenges AEJM aims to foster collaborative projects and a productive exchange of ideas and expertise.
On Tuesday, 30 June from 15:00-16:15h CET we will organise a first focused online meeting, on the topic of Fundraising.
Many museums face enormous challenges, now that regular revenue-based income has come to a halt or is reduced considerably. This puts new emphasis on fundraising skills of our institutions. Our chair, Emile Schrijver, will introduce this topic and discuss opportunities and challenges with the participants of the online meeting. The Jewish Cultural Quarter in Amsterdam recently has finished successfully a 30 million euro fundraising campaign for a National Holocaust Museum. Schrijver will discuss the underlying strategies of the international campaign, best practices, as well as future challenges for Jewish museums.
All members are invited to join, but since we would appreciate to know how many people intend to do so approximately. We ask you to let us know in advance by e-mailing to firstname.lastname@example.org. And If you forget to do so, you can of course still join.
After summer we’ll continue the online meetings on the following dates and topics, we kindly ask you to mark them in your calendar as announcements of these meetings will be posted in due course:
